Lnáře Castle

This Early Baroque four-wing castle was built by Aleš Ferdinand Vratislav of Mitrovice in the second half of the 17th century in the neighbourhood of an older Gothic Renaissance manor house. A Late Baroque bridge with six statues of saints leads to the entrance of the castle. The castle interiors are decorated by paintings with mythological, landscape and genre themes of the Baroque and Rococo periods. Especially valuable are the large front hall, adorned with beautiful painting and stucco work, and the castle’s chapel of St. Joseph, which is decorated with scenes from the life of the Holy Family and Joseph of Egypt. The castle is surrounded by a park, the front part of which contains a collection of eleven Early Classicist statues of ancient gods made by Ignác Michael Platzer. In the eastern part of the park, there is a Turkish pavilion from the first half of the 19th century.
